Atlanta BeltLine Talk in Middle Georgia
April 12, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Grab a beer and join guest speaker Kevin Burke, Principal Landscape Architect with Atlanta Beltline, Inc., as he shares some of his insights into how the Atlanta Beltline is spurring billions of dollars of economic development and the creation of thousands of jobs in the City of Atlanta by connecting neighborhoods to miles of multi-use trails, parks, and unique urban landscapes.
The Atlanta BeltLine is the most comprehensive transportation and economic development effort ever undertaken in the City of Atlanta and among the largest, most wide-ranging urban redevelopment programs currently underway in the United States. It will ultimately connect 45 intown neighborhoods via a 22-mile loop of multi-use trails, modern streetcar, and parks – all based on railroad corridors that formerly encircled Atlanta. When completed, it will provide first and last mile connectivity for regional transportation initiatives and put Atlanta on a path to 21st-century economic growth and sustainability.

Mr. Burke’s current projects include Project Management for the East Side Trail, the Perkerson Park Splashpad, and the Corridor-Wide Design, as well as post-construction oversight of Stanton, Boulevard Crossing, Historic 4th Ward Park II, and Clear Creek parks.
